A brief History of the School

The British School of Ulaanbaatar (BSU) was founded in 2010 by the “Eco School Garden” L.L.C. of Mongolia to provide an education that enables its pupils to be accepted to world renowned universities, colleges, and institutions and to contribute to the Mongolian English-speaking secondary school community to meet the ever growing demand for an internationally recognised education.  In addition, the founders aimed to establish a school which follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales and complement this curriculum with Mongolian content so that graduates will have full knowledge of and appreciation for Mongolian language, literature, history, and culture.

Construction of a state-of-the art campus complex was completed 2 months prior to the start of the 2012-2013 academic year.  A strong network with local and international educational organisations was successfully established and locally, we continue working closely with the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Mongolia; and UB City Education Office.  Internationally, we were granted Candidate Membership to the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) in February of 2012. Following this we had our external international inspection by the accreditation board, PENTA in May of 2014. The British School of Ulaanbaatar became one of the youngest ever schools to pass full international accreditation, and to register as a BSO school (British Schools Overseas). This gives us a DFES reference number which means the British School of Ulaanbaatar has reached the standards expected of any school in the United Kingdom, something that only a few international British schools have achieved. Since 2014 we became fully accredited members of COBIS.

Our founders and individuals involved in this project have an extensive and varying experience and a unique dedication to the mission. The Board members, as well as the employees constitute a dedicated internal commitment to the project that is its core strength and its forward motion.
